WHAT IS #SHIPLIFE ?
Most of us do it because of the money. But there are also other benefits like: Not paying rent, not wasting money on bills, unlimited amount of food, water and juices, opportunity to travel the world (or at least it’s more popular destinations), learn or improve a foreign language and of course grow your skills and/or learn a new profession on board. It’s a lifestyle!
